There are two days in every week about
which we should not worry,two days which should be kept free from fear
and apprehension.One of these days is Yesterday with all its
mistakes and cares,its faults and blunders, its aches and pains.
Yesterday has passed forever beyond our control.All the money
in the world cannot bring back Yesterday.We cannot undo a single
act we performed;we cannot erase a single word we said.Yesterday
is gone forever.The other day we should not worry about is
Tomorrowwith all its possible adversities, its burdens,its large
promise and its poor performance;Tomorrow is also beyond our immediate
control.Tomorrow's sun will rise,either in splendor or behind
a mask of clouds, but it will rise.Until it does, we have no stake in
Tomorrow,for it is yet to be born.This leaves only one day,
Today.Any person can fight the battle of just one day.It is when
you and I add the burdens of those two awful eternitiesYesterday and
Tomorrow that we break down.It is not the experience of Today
that drives a person mad,it is the remorse or bitterness of something
which happened Yesterdayand the dread of what Tomorrow may bring.
Let us, therefore, Live but one day at a time.
